He Who Dares Wins
A residential neighborhood just north of the Seattle metroplex.
Established just prior to the Awakening, Ashville Heights was an up-and-coming suburb catering to the tech-heads and social experimenters that had been flooding the northwest since the late 20th century. But with chaos that came in the wake of the returning magic, plagues, and social upheavals that defined the early 21st century, this would-be utopia started going downhill almost before the first families even really got settled.
Today, The Downs are just another mid-level rez zone outside the perimeter of the Emerald CIty. Not really a slum, but not a place you’d exactly brag about living – its people nevertheless maintain a strong sense of community and reach out to help each other when and as they can.
